Nuketown is a staple of the Black Ops franchise, and Cold War isn’t one to break tradition. Now, leaked screenshots allow us an early look at Black Ops Cold War’s Nuketown ’84.
Ever since Nuketown ’84 was announced to be coming shortly after the release of Black Ops Cold War, fans have been eagerly awaiting our first look at the revamped map. Now, it looks like Black Ops fans will be delighted with the design of the new Nuketown.
The map traditionally takes place on one of the smallest maps in Call of Duty history. The site of a nuclear testing facility, Nuketown is a replica of a 1950’s U.S. suburb.
Praised for its unique and entertaining design, there’s no wonder that Nuketown has returned in every Black Ops title to date. And the latest variant looks like the best version yet.
Leaked Black Ops Cold War Nuketown ’84 Screenshots
New screenshots of Nuketown ’84 in Black Ops Cold War reveal a new take on the iconic map. Fundamentally, the map appears relatively unchanged from the original, but with a new coat of paint.
And by new, we mean old. Nuketown ’84 is more aged and decrepit than its predecessor. The houses are boarded up, and there’s graffiti everywhere.
A notice on the ‘Welcome to Nuketown’ sign suggests that this is Site B. This could suggest that, despite an identical layout, this isn’t quite the same Nuketown that players know after all.
Perhaps there are some changes to the map not revealed in the new leaked Nuketown ’84 screenshots. As a nuclear testing site, it’s not unlikely that the area has been replicated a few times.
Players are already hoping for the inevitable Nuketown ’84 24/7 playlist when the map drops. But we’ll have to wait until November 24 to find out whether that dream becomes a reality.
After that, the rest of the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 content will be coming soon. Fans won’t have long to wait until they have even more new maps to play on, and Warzone is already incorporating Black Ops Cold War content.
Due to a recent bug, some fans had the chance to play Black Ops Cold War early. But for those who missed out, there are only two more days until the official launch.
